When walking the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia we camped in dry riverbeds. First camp was not too far from Alice Springs, so our tour leader had arranged for Drum Atweme to come out and play for us. A bus arrived with whoever had been available at the Town Camps, and the girls began to get organised, encouraged with a juice and a snack. Here they are nearly ready!
a few more smiles
a little warm-up, and ready to go!
